Bike covers – the perfect "travel accommodation" for your bike
Avid cyclists enjoy taking their bikes everywhere. But when cycling to your destination isn’t an option, then you’ll need a practical bike cover for the journey! Bike covers are nothing more than transport bags for your mountain bike or road bike. If you want to optimally protect your bike whilst camping, flying or traveling by bus or train, then you’ve got to check out our durable bike covers!
Why get a bike cover?
Whether you're a mountain biker or cyclist, you're sure to have invested a fair bit of money in your bike. To ensure that your expensive bike is well accommodated, you need something that can withstand the rigors of traveling. That's where bike covers come into play. Bike covers can protect your bike against the wind and rain, and prevent it from getting knocked and scratched.
However, your bike isn’t the only thing that needs to be protected! Your bike tends to get dirty whilst riding, so bike covers can help prevent the other luggage on the bus or train from getting dirty. Plus, when your bike is in a protective case, you can also take it into the hotel room or hostel.
What features should a bike cover have
A protective bike cover should first and foremost be tough. Bikes do weigh a fair bit after all, and it should be protected against sharp edges, both from the outside and within. Plus, it should have durable carry handles and a carry strap for easy transportation. Some bike covers even feature practical shoulder straps or wheels on the bottom. There are also some models with a frame padding and separate compartments for the tyres. You can get a great bike cover for traveling from Vaude, Evoc, Bach or any other quality manufacturer.
